Amy Schumer Convinced Goldie Hawn to Join Her Movie By Being a 'Psycho'

Goldie Hawn is making her first movie in 15 years. It’s with Amy Schumer, who is nothing if not persistent.

In an interview with the L.A. Times, Schumer describes meeting Hawn, who had no idea who she was:

I met her on an airplane a couple of years ago and told her there’s a movie I really want to make with her. And she was very nice. “OK, honey.” She probably thought I was a psycho.“OK, crazy person.” Then I’d meet her at different things, saying, “We’re making this movie together,” and I think, eventually, some people got in her ear and told her I wasn’t crazy, that I make things.


In the film, Hawn plays Schumer’s mother, who comforts her after she gets dumped. Schumer seems way more psyched to be comforted by Hawn then going out with a guy, saying, “Goldie … Hawn! I don’t remember the first time I didn’t love her!”

I actually find Amy Schumer’s Goldie Hawn worship pretty charming, but then she gets into what she learned from working with her and she says, “I talk about being an introvert, needing a lot of alone time, needing to recharge a lot. And I’ve been made to feel that that’s a bad quality. In different relationships, people are like, ‘Why do you need time away from the group?’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t know what’s wrong with me.’ And she’s like that too. And there’s nothing wrong with us.”

You could have learned being an introvert is cool on Tumblr, Amy. This is Goldie Freaking Hawn!

I love it when I learn that individuals who are funny/loud/outgoing, like Amy Schumer, are actually introverts. I am like this. When I am “on,” I can be the total life of the party and genuinely enjoy it, but I’m going to need like 3 days alone in the woods (just kidding, bugs are gross; please drop me off at the nearest independent book store) to recover.
